Well, kind of.

I admit I’ve been out of the loop on recent casting news. So imagine my surprise — and delight! — to see that we’re getting not one, but three members of the gang from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia guest starring in two of FOX’s Tuesday night staples  in September!

First, Rob McElhenny has a spot on The Mindy Project as Morgan’s (Ike Barinholtz) cousin Lou in the season premiere tonight at 9:30pm. Look familiar to you?

Then two weeks later on September 30, Glenn Howerton reprises his role as lawyer (and past love interest) Cliff. Mindy asks Cliff for help with her taxes — how is that going to work out with new love interest Danny (Chris Messina)?

Meanwhile, Kaitlin Olson visits New Girl on September 30 at 9pm as Jess’s father’s (Rob Reiner) new girlfriend. Talk about awkward!

Are you excited about the gang expanding their horizons beyond Philadelphia? I’ll be tuning in, that’s for sure!

Nels knew how to operate a TV remote control before she knew how to talk. As a result, she has spent an inordinate amount of time pretending she actually lives on a soundstage. When she isn’t watching whichever show is currently capturing her heart, she is writing about how said show is currently capturing her heart. She loves pie.
